etrailer by AxleTek Trailer Brakes - AKEBRK-8

Self-adjusting electric brakes measure 12-1/4" x 3-3/8". Brake pads are made of durable friction material for improved braking. E-coated backing plates resist rust. Dust shields protect from debris. Fit 15" or larger wheels.


Features:

  • Electric brakes are easier to install and offer more user control than hydraulic brakes
    • Require only an electric brake controller (sold separately) - no actuator or hydraulic lines necessary
  • Automotive-grade friction material is molded to brake shoes
    • Pads are fully bonded - not riveted - to shoes for long life and more braking torque
    • Less chance of cracking and crumbling that can lead to mechanical lockup, thanks to tapered edge and circular grinding
  • Self-adjusting brakes do not require periodic manual adjustment like standard brakes
    • Fine-tooth brake adjustment gears allow for a more precise setting
  • Dust shields protect from debris while you're towing
  • E-coated backing plates resist wear and corrosion
  • Adjuster plugs (included) cover access holes to keep dirt and grime out of the assemblies and off of the shoes
  • Left-hand (driver's-side) brake assembly and right-hand (passenger's-side) brake assembly included
    • Mounting bolts and hardware (BRKH122508) sold separately
  • QAI and CSA certified


Specs:

  • Application: most standard hub-and-drum assemblies, including Dexter and Lippert (LCI)
  • Dimensions: 12-1/4" diameter x 3-3/8" wide
  • Mounting flange bolt pattern: 4 bolt
  • Wheel size: 15" or larger
  • Axle rating: 8,000 lbs
  • Limited 1-year warranty


Self-Adjusting Brakes Don't Require Routine Adjustment

Standard electric brake assemblies require manual adjustment of the brake shoes over time to provide longer-lasting and more efficient braking performance. With self-adjusting brakes, the brake shoes are always properly aligned, so there's no need to manually adjust the brakes after the initial adjustment. As a result, you get optimum performance without having to take the time to continually perform this type of maintenance.


Thoroughly Tested for Safety

These brake assemblies meet the requirements for certification by the Canadian Standards Association (CSA). The CSA creates standards, which when complied with ensure a safe and quality product. These brake assemblies underwent extensive testing to measure stopping distances when braking. These brakes have also been tested by QAI for braking performance in a complete automotive setup and under real-world conditions to provide the most realistic scenario for the everyday driver.


Automotive-Grade Friction Material

Each shoe on these brake assemblies is lined with automotive-grade friction material for improved stopping performance and longevity. The friction material is fully bonded onto the surface of the brake shoe. This lining is custom-molded for a perfect fit. The edges are tapered to ensure long-lasting performance. This taper, along with the circular grinding that the lining undergoes, helps to prevent cracking and crumbling. This durability helps to prevent mechanical lockup, which can occur when brake shoes are excessively worn or broken.


The friction material is also SAE-N certified, which means that it is an environmentally safe product that complies with California and Washington regulations regarding the composition of brake pads. As a result, this material not only provides high-performance braking that can endure the test of time, but it is also environmentally friendly and safe for use throughout the United States and Canada.

I am usually not one to buy aftermarket parts, I always prefer “Made in USA”. However these brake assemblies were better then expected and fit perfectly. I’m yet to see the wear factor but they look good. 604709

Way cheaper than original Dexter and came w/ a shield. It's looks exactly the same and performs like Dexter, but you save a lot money. My friend saw these on my trailer and couldn't believe how much I paid. So, he had me order 4 set of them for him. I just torch off old mounting bolts and the brake assembly fit perfectly. My trailer is used mon-fri for work. Now, I have working trailer brakes. 376888

Review from a similar etrailer SelfAdjust 12-1/4 Inch 8K in Trailer Brakes


The 8'000 lb. brake assemblies I purchased were exact replacements for the ones on my Lakota LQ horse trailer. Apparently before I purchased the trailer, a "grease monkey" overfilled the hubs with grease and blew out the seals, which coated the brake shoes. Rather than changing just the shoes, I swapped the entire assemblies, a much less messy job for sure! Now I have correctly working new brakes on my new trailer. etrailer.com is great to deal with and has quick shipping as well 608567

Ask the Experts about this etrailer Trailer Brakes
Do you have a question about this Trailer Brake?


  • Electric Brakes for Rockwell 8,000 lb Torsion Axles
  • Electric brakes such as Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-8 do not fit specific axles. These are 8,000 lb rated brakes with a 4-bolt mounting flange pattern and are 12-1/4" diameter x 3-3/8" wide, so you would need that mounting bolt pattern and a hub and drum assembly that allows these brakes to fit. I've added a link to a video review of the brakes for you to take a look at.

  • Replacement 12-1/4 Inch x 3-3/8 Inch Braking Assembly with Four Bolt Brake Mounting Flange
  • If the braking assemblies you have now are indeed 12-1/4" x 3-3/8" and use a four bolt brake mounting flange then you are going to want to use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Dust Shields part # AKEBRK-8, not the Electric Trailer Brake Kit w/ Dust Shields part # AKEBRK-10. I have attached a photo which shows the correct way to measure your braking assembles for replacement. You will also need to verify that the bolt holes on your brake mounting flange are 3-7/16" apart on center from...

  • Converting Drum Brakes On A Dexter Military Trailer Axle With 8 On 6-1/2
  • I would be happy to help you choose the correct brake setup for your Dexter Torflex Axle, however there are no manufacturers that currently make electric disc brakes. All disc brakes are powered by a hydraulic cylinder. If you wish to use a disc brake setup controlled by an in-cab brake controller, you will want to consider the HydraStar Electric Over Hydraulic Actuator for Disc Brakes part # HBA16 and an electric brake controller such as the Tekonsha Prodigy P3 Trailer Brake Controller...

  • Will etrailer.com 12-1/4 inch by 3-3/8 inch Brake Assemblies Replace Dexter Brand
  • For your Dexter drums that take assemblies that are 12-1/4 inch by 3-3/8 inch our etrailer.com brand asssembly set part # AKEBRK-10 is a confirmed fit and will save you money over the Dexter kit # 23-450-451. These are both kits for 10k axles. If instead you have 8k you'd need # AKEBRK-8 for etrailer.com brand and # 23-434-435 for Dexter.

  • Choosing the Correct Replacement Electric Brakes for 8,000 lb Axle
  • Knowing your axle's weight capacity - in your case 8,000 lbs - is the first step towards finding the correct replacement brakes. The brakes you referenced, which are sold together as the Electric Trailer Brake Kit # AKEBRK-8, also have a 4 bolt mounting flange pattern, which you'll also need to have in order for these brakes to work as replacements, as well as wheels that are 15" or larger. I've added links to review videos of the individual brakes for you to take a look at.

  • What is the Four Bolt Brake Mounting Flange for 8,000 Lb Axles
  • The four bolt brake mounting flange for 8,000 lb trailer axles is going to be more or less an industry standard. This industry standard is 3-5/8" across left to right on center and 3-7/16" top to bottom on center. This could very well vary 1/16" depending on where you measure but rest assure if you have an 8,000 lb trailer axle with four bolt brake mounting flange the Electric Trailer Brake with Dust Shield part # AKEBRK-8L should be the correct braking assembly for you.

These will only require the use of an electric brake controller; I've added a link to our page with each of our controllers for you. I've also added a link to a video review of the Dexter brakes...

  • Replacement electric drum brakes needs to be selected based on the axle weight rating to ensure they have the necessary stopping power. We do offer electric drum brakes in your specified size, 12-1/4 x 3-3/8-inches, and this size comes in ratings for 8K, 9K and 10K axles. All are displayed on the linked page. Your axles should have a sticker or plate that indicates their weight rating. You'll also want to note the brake mounting bolt pattern to make sure you choose new brakes that match....

  • Adjusting a Self-Adjusting Brake Assembly on 8K Axle to Easily Remove Drum
  • The Self-adjusting Brake Assemblies like # AKEBRK-8 still have a manual adjuster to allow you to relieve that brake shoe pressure. You simply remove the plug on the back of the assembly and adjust the manual dial using a small screwdriver or brake adjuster spoon like # W80630. I've attached a video to assist.

  • Upgrading From 7K to 8K Electric Brake Assemblies on Trailer for Increased Braking Power
  • You should be able to change out the backing plates, hubs, and brakes on your trailer so you can upgrade to higher rated assemblies, but I do recommend checking a couple things on your tow vehicle first. It's possible that your weak braking is due to a wiring or brake controller issue on the vehicle. If this is the case, changing out the brake assemblies on the trailer won't resolve the issue. I first recommend testing the vehicle side 7-Way with a Multimeter like # BTMT15. Make sure...

  • Troubleshooting Trailer Brakes that Lock Up When Brakes are Touched
  • Sounds like you have a short between the stoplight/blinker circuit of your trailer wiring and the brake output circuit which is putting full 12 volts on the brake output circuit any time you touch the brakes which locks them up. I'd recommend going over the wiring of the trailer looking for any cut or exposed wire and fix as needed.

  • Can 12-1/4 Inch x 3-3/8 Inch Electric Brakes Be Added To a Lippert 7,000 Lb Trailer Axle
  • In order to install a set of 12-1/4" x 3-3/8" electric drum brakes on a Lippert 7,000 lb trailer axle you would need to remove the old 5 bolt brake mounting flange via cutting and then weld a new 7 bolt brake mounting flange on with absolute precision. If this is something that you feel you are capable of then you can use the Electric Trailer Brake Kit part # AKEBRK-8 but you would also need new hubs and drums like the Trailer Hub and Drum Assembly part # AKHD-865-8-EZ-K in addition to...

  • 2015 Palomino Sabre 36QBOK Brakes and Bearing Recommendation
  • I looked in several places online and couldn't get a definite axle capacity for your trailer. I'd assume it's a pretty high capacity since it's a tandem axle trailer that weighs 12k and has 3k of capacity. So most likely you have 8k axles like what the part # 8-285-11 hub fits which has bearing numbers # 25580 and # 02475 with grease seal # RG06-070. Then for brake assemblies part # AKEBRK-8.

  • In order to determine if a drum/hub with a 8 on 6-1/2" bolt pattern will work with the braking assemblies you have on your trailer now you will need to first determine the size of hub/drum you need which can be done by measuring your existing hub/drum (see photo). You would then want to know the inner bearing, outer bearing, and grease seal numbers. If the numbers are not visible then you will want to measure where each of them seat on the spindle with a digital caliper like part # 301-17068...

  • For your 8K Dexter axle we have 12-1/4 x 3-3/8-inch self-adjusting electric drum brake kit # K23-532-533-00. These brakes use a 4-bolt mounting pattern and they fit trailer wheels from 16-inches up to 17-1/2-inches. These Dexter brakes are USA-made and they include mounting hardware. You will need two kits.
